Hello I am new here. My mum has just gone into a care home and has dementia .I am an only child and we have no other relatives. I have just started the application for becoming a deputy for my mum's affairs but I am very put off and don't know that I can handle the additional stress involved. The LA have already used quite bullying and threatening communications. Would I be a very bad person to hand all this over to a solicitor and not become a deputy? Thank you all in advance.
